MUST have APP

Michelle42

I have used this App for many years & still one of my favorites - when I hear a song I Iove and I want to save it or want to know the artist. Or hear an old song while with friends and no-one can remember the artist or title

Easy & very useful app

JenHWit

I find this app much better than any of the others which serve a similar function. Easy to use & very accurate. Love it!

Great performance

Barhule

SoundHound works perfectly for me, like the option of saving the tracks under pending until i have WiFi connection
